This is not a quality product!
Have had this Bauhn ATV-46FLEM 46” tv for 7 years and it ages ok. The reason for giving it a 3-star rating is that you really just get what you pay for. It has been great to me for the past 6 years but most electrical technology (in this case, a tv) start to die after 7 years, and this is the case for me. The remote is cheap, weak and now hardly works. Have to press the back of the remote down with some force for tv to respond to remote. In the last year or less, the display has started to act very strange. The display blacks-out but the tv is ...still on as the LED back light is still shining behind the LCD screen but there is nothing displayed. The display also glitches and goes black and sound and all cuts out, resulting in the same way that I just described. Sound quality is quite standard for the price and the picture quality is standard HD 1080p, so basically, it’s just a standard affordable device. Overall, this is a pretty good product as all tv’s and other similar technology generally last for a period of about 6-7 years and then your due for an upgrade. 3 stars is what this TV deserves I think as it has served it’s time well for me, but now I’d say that it’s ready for at trip to the tip. Hope this helps with deciding whether or not you should buy one of these second-hand off Gumtree or Facebook Marketplace or somewhere else as they are discontinued due to the manufacturing of new Bauhn Actios models, so there is a high possibly that, being 7 years old, there is no longer any new stock left anywhere. If you ask me, most people selling their ATV-46FLEM 46” are probably selling it because of these issues, so save your time and cash and just buy a new tv. Being 2019, you can get a big bang for your buck as technology is advancing rapidly, providing cheaper ways to make better products.
Purchased in December 2012 for $550.00.

Excellent value and still going at 7 years
Everything is perfect about this TV except the option to lighten the brightness. For movies that have a lot of dark scenes I am left in the dark... But that is only one negative in 7 years of viewing. I have this TV on 5 hours plus daily. The colour, clarity, contrast and sound were all perfectly adjusted the first time I turned it on. My previous analogue had a brilliant sound system which I miss and this is just basic sound but for $550 I can't expect more. I hope I get more years out of this TV and hope when it needs replacing that Aldi...s new models will be as brilliant as this one - looking forward to having a smart TV that I can download from You Tube and have direct internet access too as I have disability. Though reading the current model reviews it's not looking good....
Purchased in August 2012 for $550.00.
Sound quality is extremely poor with echoing. Very slow to start up & "initialise". Have contacted Aldi supplier - Bauhn/ Tempo several times whilst under warranty & subsequently with no real successful resolution. Technician actually agreed that the sound is not great!
Not a patch on our old Panasonic (or even older LG).
Don't waste your time or money on these types of Aldi TV products!
Bauhn full HD tv's - 46"
I have had the above for over 2 years - it is very good at being a TV
I don't like, or admire, the display from the program guide, when compared to our 6 yo 32" Samsung, however it is usable and accurate. Picture and sound are very good
All in all, the Bauhn is a very good TV and at Aldi prices is an absolute bargain
Would recommend it to all.
I can't find firmware upgrades
I bought this TV and am very satisfied with it, there are some problems when recording TV to the USB device. I believe that an upgrade from the software might address this problem but I can not find where to download the latest firmware from. Otherwise this is the best TV I ever had and I truly recommend this TV to all my friends
Picture quality, ease of use, connectability to a USB disk
While recording a program the TV does not work
Questions & Answers
Why does my TV lately suddenly turn off while watching a programme? Sometimes it comes back on again in a few seconds but a lot of the time I can't get it back on without totally switching off on the wall and switching on again. I have even put new batteries in the remote. It has been a fantastic TV to date.
